Pregnant- 38 weeks in!

Yes, you read that correctly! I am 38 weeks pregnant with Baby Girl. I am writing this post on a Monday, which means in exactly 2 weeks (if not sooner), Baby Girl will be arriving via C-section. I am scared, excited, anxious, etc. I had a newborn over 3 years ago, so I definitely need to become reaccumulated to it.

Due Date: July 9, 2014! Csection (3rd one) is on July 7, 2014
Total Weight Gained: +31  pounds
How big is baby? The doctor thinks this will be my smallest baby. He is thinking around 7’2. I am thinking 7’9. 
Labor Signs: None thankfully but it can start at any time.
Maternity Clothes: Of course and I don’t fit in most of them now either!
Stretch Marks: None so far. I had none with either kid, so it best stick like that:) Lotion is key!
Sleep: Pretty good. I have not felt tired which is amazing. I go to sleep from 12-8 with 1 or 2 pee break wake ups. I am sleeping around 6-8 hours a night which is great! 
Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week: Seeing Baby Girl toe outline my belly. It was the weirdest thing evert! 
Movement: Constantly! She never stops!
Food Cravings: Nothing really except diet soda! Bad, I know!
Food Aversions: Nothing at all!
Sex: It is a girl! 
Names: We have her name picked out but you will find out soon enough.
Exercise: Stopped tennis at 35 weeks. Now I am just working as a dentist, which is enough exercise.
What I miss: Raw Oysters! RI has the best raw seafood in the summer and I can’t wait to partake. Also, a stiff drink! 
What I’m looking forward to:  Meeting her! Seeing her personality and seeing if she is born with hair:) Both of my kids had ridiculous amounts of hair when born

    You look wonderful! I enjoyed reading your update, it brought back memories. With all three of my children I was scared, excited and anxious, too. Congratulations and best wishes for you and your new addition to the family!

    Eeeeeek! I’m so excited for you guys! Getting back into newborn mode is fun. I can’t believe how many of the little things you forget when you haven’t been there in a while. All of their little squeaks, the way they curl up in a little ball, the sweet rooting reflex when they are hungry, the itty, bitty, teeny, tiny little clothes and diapers…gah! Enjoy these last few weeks, and I’m praying for a safe delivery of your little one!
